New technology said to be future of vehicle incident management
The system, which uses impact sensors, telematics and black box technology, will directly contact ISG and other interested parties when the vehicle to which it is fitted is subject to an impact. This allows ISG to contact the driver, the authorities and, if necessary, the emergency services.
In addition to providing a rapid response to a potentially serious situation, ISG Sense is said to reduce costs by capturing accident details quickly and efficienty to help speed up claims.
Gareth Wakefield, managing director of ISG, said: 'We see ISG Sense as the future of vehicle incident management. The speed of reporting ticks many of the boxes to comply with Ministry of Justice reforms and cost reduction.
'By being proactive we allow an insurer to contact any non-fault parties quickly and efficiently, reducing the claim costs that might be incurred by the insurer. Self-insured fleets also benefit from this proactive approach. The speedy response also reduces costs for recovery and storage of vehicles.'
In addition, ISG Sense allows a fleet operator to measure fuel consumption, excess speed and driver behaviour to help reduce overall fleet costs.
The technology has been developed in conjunction with tracking technology firm Simplytrak and is being distributed exclusively by Blackbox Telematics in the UK.
